GNYP Gallery is delighted to present the new group exhibition Day & Night with works by Wycliffe Mundopa & Gresham Nyaude in our gallery space at Knesebeckstraße 96 in Berlin. The opening will take place on July 05th, Saturday, from 6 to 9 pm. The exhibition can be viewed till August 10th, 2019.
The African artists Wycliffe Mundopa and Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude, who are both living and working in Zimbabwe, reflecting in their colorful expressive paintings on the impact of their environment, which confronts the viewer with topics such as poverty, violence, prostitution and social classification of people. Even if both artists have similar themes, they approach them differently: Mundopa’s artworks focus on the dynamic lives of African women and their different roles in conflict between tradition and modern life as well as children, who become adults early on because of economic burdens. Nyaude’s figures resist a concrete characterization and identity. His images oscillate between figuration, abstraction and hallucination.
Mundopa’s and Nyaude’s work has been widely exhibited throughout their hometown, as well as South Africa, Australia and the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Australia, France, Germany and The Netherlands and many others.
